General Manager for Umunthu Microfinance Vinny Kumitete said they decided to help victims at the orphanage in Kachere Township following advice from Blantyre City Council.

“As an organization aimed at promoting the welfare of people, we thought this is the best time to show how supportive we are,” said Kumitete.

“We consulted Blantyre City Council because it is the one aware of the places that have been affected hugely and where people are camping,” he said.

Group village headwoman Kachere, speaking on behalf of the beneficiaries, said she is so thankful for the donation because her people have been starving for a while and that now they will have something to eat.

Microfinance is an organization which supports small and medium entrepreneurs in rural and urban areas through the provision of credit and trainings.

The organization donated 50 packets of beans, 50 blankets, 50 buckets, 50 packets of rice, 50 bags of flour, 40 packets of salt, 100 packets of sugar, 24 bottles of cooking oil, 100 plastic cups, 2 bags of Likuni Phala, 200 plastic plates and 45 rolls of plastic sheets.
